i started this web site as a vehicle for expressing myself, like most (if not all) bloggers. the original idea and name for the site came from my deep interest (ok, obsession) with writing poems for and taking photos of the awesome people i encounter on our city public transportation. i wanted to share these “poems” beyond facebook, where many of them were originally published. i also wanted to share the other kind of poems that i create, namely, photos of refuse and found things, cracked city walls, urban decay in all its splendor and amazingness.
the site is still totally in development. i’m slowly teaching myself CSS and HTML so i can customize it. i’m using wordpress.org (an amazing platform with an amazing community) to self-host my site (the 2011 theme). it’s a lot of fun and i’m enjoying the project a lot.
